Advices and Queries

Friends do not have a creed but we do have a set of spiritual Queries which help us individually and as communities to consider our spiritual condition. We also have Advices, based on the spiritual wisdom gleaned over the years. Here is a sample. We will post a new ones from time to time. 

Peace is This Moment Without Judgment

Do you think peace requires an end to war?
Or tigers eating only vegetables?
Does peace require an absence from
your boss, your spouse, yourself?...
Do you think peace will come some other place than here?
Some other time than Now?
In some other heart than yours? 

Peace is this moment without judgment.
That is all. This moment in the Heart-space
where everything that is is welcome.
Peace is this moment without thinking
that it should be some other way,
that you should feel some other thing,
that your life should unfold according to your plans. 

Peace is this moment without judgment,
this moment in the heart-space where
everything that is is welcome.

What's New

Wilton Quaker Meeting is holding Meeting For Worship using Zoom during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Dear Friends,

      Given the escalating COVID-19 virus situation, we have made some difficult decisions to balance our ability to worship as a community with the danger represented by even a few of us gathering to worship in person.  There is no guarantee that a person without symptoms is actually free of the virus, so we have chosen to err on the side of caution, especially given that many members of our Meeting are in age and health groups that pose extra risk.

Friend Peter Murchison was featured on FCNL Quaker Welcome Center online on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Peter is a member of Wilton Quaker Meeting, co-clerk of Ministry and Oversite and an outspoken advocate for gun violence prevention. He engages in this important work in honor of his nephew, Daniel Barden - one of the children who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting.

Sunday, June 9, 2019 Purchase Quarter kicked off a new child-centered worship and fellowship for families. Scarsdale Meeting hosted this first gathering. We met for worship through a Faith & Play story on gifts and singing, played outside together and shared a simple meal. Children and their parents had fun and enjoyed connecting with one another. The next Quarterly Quaker Family Sunday Supper will be hosted by Wilton Meeting at the end of the summer. Families from within and beyond Purchase Quarter are welcome! Join us!

Maryteresa “Missy” Conrad, Diane Keefe and Virginia Auster protested military spending Monday outside the Main Post Office in SoNo.

“Many taxpayers rushing to mail their returns voiced agreement. One walked quickly by yelling, ‘MAGA baby’ in disagreement,” Keefe wrote.
